MADRID, Spain (AP) -- FC Barcelona goalkeeper Robert Enke is to join Fenerbahce on a year\'s loan, news reports said Tuesday.

Enke was expected to travel to Istanbul on Tuesday before signing for the Turkish club, Spanish agency Efe reported, citing the player\'s agent Jorg Neblung. Enke has made only a handful of appearances since joining FC Barcelona from Benfica last summer, and was left out of the club\'s current U.S. tour.

His future has looked more uncertain since Turkish international \'keeper Rustu Recber arrived from Fenerbahce on a four-year contract last month.

Enke, a former German under-21 international, previously played for German teams Carl Zeiss Jena and Borussia Moenchengladbach.
